I wonder whether there's Depression, here, maybe some social anxiety ? Within the Bipoalr Disorder ? I wonder what sort of psychologist you're seeing, as only CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) seems likely to be helpful here, and psychoanalytical mush would be worse than useless, and it totally obsolete. I don't understand a psychologist saying they cannot help you, especially not without a detailed discussion of what is wrong, what is needed, and why SHE can't help you. Similarly, nobody should be wasting time or money on therapy that's going nowhere --- one of the things I like about CBT is that one sets agendas and works to an agreed plan, rather than drifting aimlessly. Seek such a therapist, and this may well help. Resist the tendency for your world to get smaller --- get involved in charities and similar activities, especially over the holiday period, so that you can concentrate on meeting the needs of others, even mor eunfortunate than you, rather than simply sitting around absorbed in your own misery. I'm sure you could be of real value to others.
